Jeppe joined Northzone in 2012. His primary areas of focus are mobile, fintech, SaaS and marketplaces. His portfolio includes Cornerjob, Zopa, Wallapop, MarketInvoice, AllUnite and eProspects. Jeppe has over the years also invested in companies including Space Ape Games, Sticky, EpiServer, Tobii, End2End, Cocom and Nomad. Jeppe established the firm’s London office.
Jeppe grew up in Denmark, and has lived and studied in Germany and England. He holds a combined bachelors in economics and politics from Durham University, and a Masters in economics.
His formative career years were spent at Deutsche Bank, focusing on mergers and acquisitions. A crash course in principal investing followed as Jeppe was part of the founding team setting up a venture capital fund with the bank as investor, and later Jeppe got to see the inside of the crazy ups and downs of the technology boom and bust first hand.
When DB Capital was spun out, the young venture capitalist took his career elsewhere and joined Amadeus. Here, Jeppe worked through the ranks and made it to Partner. Funnily enough, one of Jeppe’s cases was a company called Streamserve, founded by Hans Otterling. Then as Hans Otterling joined Northzone, Jeppe and Hans co-invested in several companies, Tobii, Nyx and Episerver. ”So”, Jeppe concludes ”I was clearly the oldest, new entrant at Northzone!”
